I have a WLAN with 5 1200 Series AP (A/G) configured for Fast Roaming using the Cisco supplied documentation. Can I use one user name for all of my devices to connect to the Internal Radius Server? This would be similar to having a passphrase for WPA. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.
I understood you have autonoomus/standalone APs wiht WDS (Wireless Domain Server) configured for FSR. right?
You can use same username from multiple devices if your Radius does not prohipit more than one session per username. Make sure that your RADIUS server allows multiple sessions for the user you want to use and it should work.
Note please that using same username with multuple users is not the same of using PSK (talking from security perspective). using 802.1x is usually more secure.
Rating useful replies is more useful than saying "Thank you"
Thank you for your reply. You understood my setup correctly. I have 4 of my AP's participating in a WDS. The WDS is another seperate AP (solely acting as WDS and not acting as an AP) which is also acting as the Local RADIUS server. I will check to see if the local RADIUS server on the AP will accept multiple logons. Thanks again!
That would not be much secure from security perspective like you can't avail radius accountinf feature for tracking users or sessions. Also, you can not restrict access or use other features. If you don't have any considerartion for those features then you can use a common user,password for all your devices.
